  • Hello BionicSparhawk.

    You can ask your question in the Windows Answers Forum at http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows.
    Remember that to create a dual boot system, the oldest Windows version should be the first installed; then you'll go on installing the most recent ones, whose boot loaders will find the existing Windows installations and configure the system for the multiple boot.

    Bye.

  • Unfortunatly, I am stuck with starting with the Windows 8 system and trying to get the dual boot for Windows 7 onto that machine. The UEFI BIOS presents a problem with doing this smoothly ;-).
